Solaris 2.5 vs 2.6 performance

Solaris 2.5 vs 2.6 performance

Post by Don Alle » Fri, 17 Oct 1997 04:00:00

Does anyone know where I can find some "specific" information and
measurements related to Solaris 2.6?  After investigating the Sun
website and multiple others, relevant data comparing the two versions is
difficult to find.  I am looking for specific statistical data comparing
the two versions of Solaris. Any suggestions?

Thanks, D...

1. Solaris 8 ifconfig (lo0) problem VS Solaris 2.5,2.6,7

Under all versions of Solaris, except 8, when you ifconfig your loopback
address (lo0) with an IP address of some other host that host won't be able to
ping or make any network connections to the server.  That's obvious because the
ip address is now local to the machine and everything just breaks for that

Some router in between to connect each other.
Server =

Then you "ifconfig lo0:1 netmask up" and the host
cannot talk to the server anymore.

In the Solaris 8 environment, even patched up with xref file 2/28/01, when you
do an "ifconfig lo0 addif netmask up" or "ifconfig
lo0:1 plumb ; ifconfig lo0:1 netmask up" the host
is still able to talk with the server.  If you wait like 2 hours, sometimes the
host will not be able to ping/talk to the server until you unplumb lo0:1 then
traffic will start right away.

Has anyone else seen this?  Is this an "added feature" in solaris 8?  Any
suggestions to make it work like previous versions of Solaris.  Well for that
matter make it would like is should.   :)
